Step 2

For eggs with colored tops, place one egg at a time in their carton. Quickly use acrylic spray paint to paint top of egg from directly overhead.

Step 3

For polka-dotted eggs, dip a foam pouncer into a bit of white or blue craft paint (depending on color you've dyed egg). Press dabber evenly onto egg to create polka dots. Let dry completely. Continue around egg until you achieve desired look. (Vary paint color and size of pouncer as desired.)
